I don't agree that we should wait; people can continue to use the
existing functionality after it's been deprecated (like I said, it's
not going to dissapear from every server overnight), and I doubt that
anyone's going to try and come up with a new thing *unless* the old
one is deprecated and more servers are *considering* dropping
functionality.
